Hope ran deep when Smith left humanity’s first generation ship to lay roots with his wife and son in the open air of a new planet. When the colony ship broke apart on entry, however, countless lives were lost, including Smith’s beloved wife.
Everything changed, and he now fights to keep his son and his colony alive, all the while fighting off alien-induced hallucinations.
Meanwhile, back on the generation ship, Smith’s apprentice Tashon seeks to discover what happened to his beloved mentor and the colony. He soon learns that the expedition’s leaders are focused on a much more imminent danger, one that could prove the destruction of the entire generation ship.
Each of the two groups, cut off from one another, must fight for survival against an enemy that no one saw coming.
